The Bridge at Midnight Trembles

Parkinson's Disease and Deep Brain Stimulation

Streaming Video - 2009
Rate this:
Diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1990, actor Richard Moir endured thirteen years of shakes, freezes, and depression as his career faded, his disease worsened, and various treatments achieved nothing. This program follows Moir as he prepares to undergo the procedure known as deep brain stimulation; it also documents his uncertain recovery period. Presenting photos and movie clips depicting the patient's personal experiences-including his first symptoms of Parkinson's-the film accompanies Moir as the day of his operation approaches, as he enters the hospital and readies for surgery, and afterwards as scars heal, hair grows back, and a degree of bodily control returns.
